My name is Geert Bero and I am born in Oostende Belgium, vintage 1973.
In 2004  I moved to Stockholm, Sweden, where I live with my wife and children. My job is running the Hotel Bero in Oostende, Belgium, with a well stocked whiskybar of course.

I started buying a couple of Ardbeg's and focused on distillery bottlings only for the collection. I always try to buy two bottles of each, one for collecting, the other one for drinking. I do have about 110 open Ardbegs including some independent bottles in my personal drinking stash. My friends join me regularly for a tasting in the great Ardbeg Room.

Have fun and enjoy exploring my site!
